Psychedelic Medicine News and Blog Archive – The Last Word : An interview with Terence McKenna

“All boundaries are dissolving… What’s happening is, a single human viewpoint is sort of coming into existence; a viewpoint that values nature, values natural resources and tries to, however clumsily, to make some kind of peace out of the whole human mess that we’re now mixed up in… It brings an empathy to the destruction of the planet… The cutting of the rainforest is no longer abstract – it’s actually something you can feel and relate to.

So, if we begin to see the aboriginal people of every continent as the holders of this knowledge, they will begin to look not so naive, not so foolish… but actually as sophisticated people who have developed a working relationship with these powers, and that’s the only way we’re going to get real political change.” ~Terence McKenna
